Samsung Details New Storage Chip For Smartphones

Samsung has detailed its new storage chip for smartphones, which aims to make handheld devices thinner and faster. Delivering a considerable amount of storage space and enhanced performance, the Korean firm said its new 64GB chip is 20 percent thinner than previous ones.

It's made possible thanks to the utilization of 10 nanometer technology instead of the 20nm used in previous offerings. In addition to taking up less space inside the smartphone, Samsung stressed that the company has managed to enhance performance by 30 percent, subsequently leading to 10 times faster speeds than external memory cards.

While smartphones are already shifting towards a thinner and faster designs that offer more internal storage, battery life is also a concern because increased performance will demand more power.

The forthcoming chips have entered the production phase with Samsung expected to incorporate them into the Galaxy S4.

    @Samsung: Please use the opened space to put bigger battery. I dont mind my phone being as thick as Galaxy Nexus or even a bit thicker. a 3000+ mAh battery is a must.

    100% Agree

    Dunno why some people seems so obsessed with "excessively" thin phones,. if hardware is becoming more efficient,. why make it thinner and have the same battery life when they could simply keep the same girth and slap in bigger battery.

    When will they finally start using the extra space for a larger battery? I mean, who honestly cares if their phone becomes 2-3 mm thinner? I know I don't. It'd be nice to have phones with a battery life which lasts longer than 24 hours on medium to heavy use.

    Soo we will have phones with so small chips they wont even be able to find them, but we still cannot have a decent political system or general human respect.

    Is it just me, or this world is going nuts?

    Sure, they reduced package space by 20%, but how much have the reduced the endurance by going to a 10nm process?
    Does it really make sense to have a 64GB vs a 32GB device if the non-replaceable storage starts failing in a year?
